What is MINI Big Love?

This year, MINI launched an incredible global campaign named ‘Big Love’ which aims to influence social change and bring positivity to the world around us - a campaign open for everyone, no driver’s licence required.

All four of our Dick Lovett MINI Centres - Melksham, Bristol, Hungerford and Swindon - are passionate about the local community, so as part of our commitment to MINI Big Love, we are proud to be launching new partnerships to support inspiring organisations and charities.

We’ve got some exciting plans ahead as our teams’ prepare for a weekend filled with Big Love! From Friday 19th to Saturday 20th August 2022, we welcome you all to join us at one of our MINI centres to show your support and join in the activities:  

MINI Bath & The Firefighters Charity

Firefighters Charity

Dick Lovett MINI Bath will kick off the weekend with a cake sale to raise money for The Firefighters Charity. They exist to support the mental, physical and social needs of all serving and retired members of the UK’s fire family. You can find out more here - https://www.firefighterscharity.org.uk/how-we-can-help

Our Bath team will also be donating a specially made luxury hamper to Bath Avon Fire and Rescue Service staff to thank them for all of their hard work and dedication. Help support the firefighters that keep us safe by donating today.

There’s also an exciting competition taking place where the lucky winner can soak in the sun with one of our MINI Convertibles for the weekend! All you’ve got to do is guess how many balloons we’ve managed to stash inside one.

We’d love for you to join us at Lower Bristol Road, Bath BA2 3DR on Friday 19th August. We’ll be open between 9:00 and 17:00, so come along whenever you can!

MINI Bristol & Bristol’s Children’s Hospital

The Grand Appeal Wallace and Gromit

At Dick Lovett MINI Bristol, we’re delighted to be supporting the Starlight Oncology Ward and Bluebell Neurology Ward at Bristol Children’s Hospital, by delivering luxury hampers to thank both wards for the incredible support they’ve provided to the children of two of our MINI Bristol staff members. 

Since 1995, The Wallace & Gromit Grand Appeal has provided essential funds that have allowed the hospital to develop its facilities and further support the children in its care.

We’ll be holding a delicious cake sale on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th August for the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity - The Grand Appeal. We’ll also be hosting our very own miniature Gromit trail for both kids and adults to enjoy!

MINI Hungerford & Dogs Trust

Dogs Trust

Our Hungerford MINI Centre is showing Big Love to man’s best friend as they support Dogs Trust Newbury.

Dogs Trust helps to rehome and improve the lives of dogs who’ve unfortunately had a tough start to life. Which is why we are delivering lots of dog goodies and treats to Dogs Trust Newbury, to make dogs' lives a little more fun whilst they are waiting to be rehomed.

We’re also holding a cake sale (pup-cakes included!) at Bath Road, Hungerford RG17 0EL on the 19th & 20th August 2022 between 9.00 and 17.00 to help raise further funds. Please join us and feel free to bring along your four-legged friend, all dogs are welcome! 

Dogs are a large part of many of our lives - they're part of the family - so it’s incredibly important that we help organisations like Dogs Trust. You can kindly make a donation by clicking below:
